Well Being Services Ltd. - Pre-Bargaining Bulletin #1: Preparations Underway - BC General Employees' Union (BCGEU)

Your bargaining committee has been actively preparing to negotiate renewal of the collective agreements for all nine Well Being Services Ltd. / Retirement Concepts sites represented by the BCGEU.

In July, the bargaining committee members from your worksite spent three days carefully reviewing your entire collective agreement as a first step in preparing proposals for the negotiating table. In late-August, your committee members met again, this time with the staff negotiator, for training in the process and pitfalls of bargaining and to review your bargaining survey priorities and continue developing proposals. Based on your priorities and the work of your committee members, the staff negotiator is now drafting proposals for the committee's consideration. Your bargaining committee will meet once more later this month to finalize proposals for tabling with the employer.

In the meantime, we will reach out to the employer to set bargaining dates and will share these dates with you. Thank you for your patience and solidarity throughout this lengthy process. If you have any questions or concerns, please speak with a worksite member of your bargaining committee.

In solidarity,
